Prithvi Shaw formed half of Delhi’s destructive opening combination alongside the veteran Australian opener, David Warner. The duo had the most destructive strike rates in the powerplay, setting up Delhi’s tempo for the rest of the innings, on which the likes of Rishabh Pant and Rovman Powell capitalized.
While Shaw’s availability for the next matches is not known, it seems like he could come back into the XI if Delhi can manage to reach the playoffs stage of the tournament. Delhi still has to win their last couple of matches in the competition if they wish to enter the top four in the league table.
